Steve Jobs Resigns: more related news

We wanted to point you in the direction of a several additional articles about todays news, see below.  You will also find the text of Steve Jobs’ letter to Apples board.

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my  duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know.  Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees  fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our  succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I  look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all  for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
